The Executive Mansion

Record #:
Built in the early 20th-century, the 38-room governor's mansion demanded a great deal from its early inhabitants. Gubernatorial families were faced with sizable upkeep and furnishing the large home proved problematic at first. The mansion nearly met an early demise when the Board of Health gave the residence a low rating and suggested it be demolshed, which Governor Angus W. McLean refused.
